Meeting the Family

This past weekend, Grayson made his first of many trips across the state to meet some of his extended family. The rest of us tagged along too! Although the trip there was stressful for Jayce and his parents (yes, Jayce decided that it had been so long since he'd had to sit in the car for an amount of time that he would be crabby and scream most of the way), Grayson did wonderful on his first extended car ride!
Grandma Delores felt well enough and strong enough to hold the amazing growing boy for a while. I can tell you from personal experience that Grayson gets quite heavy after a while, and Grandma D (what Jayce calls her - he went running full speed at the door when she arrived!!) held him for at least 10 minutes. Grayson loved the cuddles! Can't you tell?!?
Aunt Dawn was fighting off a bad cold and offered to not come, but we insisted that she have a chance to meet Grayson sooner rather than later. We just used some precautionary measures to help insure that little (big?) Grayson didn't acquire the cold also! Aunt Dawn was more than willing to comply!
This is our most recent four generation picture. Only, there's more than four of us now!!
Grayson really enjoyed meeting everyone. I believe the evidence of this lies in the way he slept the entire time he met new people! We had a very good visit and we can't wait to go back in just two weeks so Grayson can meet his Uncle Kevin and Aunti Rachel!! I imagine these two weeks will go by so slow because we are looking forward to it so much...

Awww...I wish we could have come to meet Grayson and see Jayce! My kids and I are still sick, so it's probably a good thing we didn't. Sorry we missed seeing you guys, but we look forward to seeing you in a couple of weeks!
Love ya!
Crystal and family
